Let me just state at the onset of this post that I am a brave, brave girl. On Tuesday night, Mr. C and I went to the William Way Community Center for the LGBT community in Philadelphia.
As a heterosexual couple.
For our date night.
For the life of me I can't imagine what the people there must have thought when they saw us. Or what possessed me to actually want to take this step. I am sure that I was puzzling the librarian in the center when I checked out Dyke Life and From Wedded Wife to Lesbian Life alongside When Husbands Come out of the Closet.
Yup, we're a conundrum.
The center seems like a nice place, with a lot of great activities going on for the community. They offer Peer Counseling, a Buddhist meditation club, Maj-Jongg, and family activities. It seems like a safe place to learn some more about the local LGBT community (as my stomach is in knots at the prospect of having to introduce myself to someone else and explain IN REAL LIFE what my situation is).
I can do hard things.
Really, I can.
